Playtest v2.4

I’ve put up a beta-version of v2.4 up at the downloads page (below the stable release). I’m looking for some feedback (but mainly critical bugs) before the official release. If you are interested and want a chance to influence development, please take a look and let me know how the game plays, preferably before the […]

v2.3 introduces a new set of interesting behaviours among monsters to make them feel more alive and interesting. Talking Monsters You will find that some of the intelligent monsters will occasionally speak to you (and they will not generally say nice things…). While this is mostly for pure flavour/immersion, they will sometimes reveal information that […]
